I have 2 Logitech PS2 keyboard, a Y-SAB59 and Y-BH52. I got a new laptop and it does not have a PS2 port, so I bought a PS2 to USB adapter. The problem is that neither of the two keyboards is being recognized. The keyboards are drawing power, but I keep getting deviced not recognized message.
I downloaded the drivers for the Y-BH52 and installed - no change. Any ideas??

Not all PS/2 mice and keyboards can make use of a PS/2 to USB converter. As a rule if the keyboard or mouse did not come packaged with a converter it probably will not work.

I have this same issue. Are there no drivers to handle a PS2 mouse connected to a USB port via one of these passive adapters? Seems like it would be a fairly easy thing to provide and something that lots of people would appreciate. In looking for a solution, I've seen MANY posts about this issue. People naturally want to use their old keyboards with new computers.

I have two laptop computers. One is a HP using Windows 7, The other is a new macbook pro. I connected this keyboard via USB to PS2 adapter and not able to use keyboard. Unless anyone has suggestions on how to make this work, I will put this under my rear car tire and roll over it. Thank you for any suggestions.
